Little Mix (formerly known as Rhythmix) are an English four-piece girl group comprising members Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall. They were formed for the eighth series of The X Factor, where they became the first group entry to win in the programme's eight-year history. Whilst they were on The X Factor they were mentored by Tulisa Contostavlos and made history by beating Marcus Collins in the Final.
It's hard being a celebrity journo - sometimes you have to go off for a really nice dinner and have a singalong with Little Mix. Ok, we lied it's not hard at all.
The Sunday Mirror's very own celebrity guru Dean Piper got to do exactly that this week, when he headed out for dinner with the girlband and their mentor Tulisa.
The night also featured some people playing some guitars at the table, as you can see below when you watch Dean and the girls hanging out.
Little Mix didn't take much encouraging to have a little singalong, and even did some of that at-the-table dancing that you do before you're quite ready to dance on the actual dancefloor.
Jesy screamed for joy when the girlband were crowned winners of the ITV1 talent show last Sunday. Industry experts predict the group will earn £8million.
Her dad John Nelson, 46, is a well known local businessman who runs a string of firms including a Hornchurch garden centre.
He was jailed after an amateur boxer was stabbed to death outside a club 26 years ago. He was dubbed the "Disco Killer" when he was convicted of murder.
But he was later cleared on appeal and instead served a shorter sentence for affray.
Jesy's mother Janis, 51, split from John years ago and is now a police community support officer in Canvey Island, Essex.
All four of Little Mix have said they never use drugs or drink. Perrie said: "We're totally little goody two-shoes."
